Industrial Integration Academy has launched for the DCSC

From the Indiana Economic Development Corporation

The Decatur County School Corporation will be launching their Industrial Integration Academy,
also known as IIA this fall and NiPro Pharmapacking Americas Corporation, located in Westport,
is proud to be one of the four partners.
“I am excited to showcase an alternate avenue for students that can outline company
culture, benefits, opportunities, expectations, and potential career paths. Having
manufacturers and DCCS work together to prepare eager students is something ideal to
promote and expand on,” Said Shane Miller, Plant Manager for Nipro.
Miller went on to say “Having an outlet within the community that develops talent is
good for any business. For Nipro, we are excited to use this platform to tell our story
while giving opportunities to local students to grow with us. We feel having personal
involvement will bode well for our business in attracting the youth, in a historically tough
time of retention/replacement.”
The partnership has included collaboration on lesson plans and overall objectives for
the program. Decatur County has a large presence in the states manufacturing makeup
and with the assistance of local programs will continue to grow not only in employment
numbers, but also in skilled workforce. According to data from the Indiana Department
of Workforce Development, Manufacturing ranks first in our total employment sectors,
employing over five thousand residents.
Nipro is a global leader in the medical and pharmaceutical supply chain. They have
over 60 plants and 240 sales offices. Locally, they employ approximately 100
